With improper brushing, the bacteria in your mouth accumulate on your teeth. Over time, this layer of bacteria forms a white, sticky substance at the gum line called plaque. At Long Island Dental Excellence in Rockville Centre we know that iff the plaque is not removed, gum disease results which can lead to problems including tooth loss.

Dr. Michael Rechter finds that many patients in the Rockville Centre area think that missing teeth are not a problem if they can eat normally. However, missing teeth can greatly impact the rest of the mouth. Even with the loss of only one tooth, the support structure of the mouth is affected. Pressure and load forces during biting and chewing have to be redistributed to other teeth. Without the support of a missing tooth, the surrounding teeth start moving into the space that is left. These changes may harm your remaining teeth and lead to further tooth loss.

Please call Long Island Dental Excellence in Rockville Centre, NY to make an appointment to see Michael Rechter, D.D.S. He can treat your dental problems and help prevent more in the future. Phone (516) 766-0122.
